[Los Angeles Filter] Looking for a great OB/GYN and GP near Santa Monica

For the last few years I've been going to the Women's Clinic and PP for my routine exams, BC, etc. as needed but it's time to find a regular OB/GYN. I also need to replace my retired GP. Please refer me to your awesome doctors located in the Santa Monica/Venice/MDR/WLA area!

The clinic and PP have been great for the basics but I need to find an OB/GYN for some managed care stuff. A doc that focuses on menopause/post-menopausal treatments and needs will be more useful than one who specializes in fertility treatments and having babies, but I'm mainly concerned with finding a great doc.
My old GP was wonderful, but when she retired she sent her patients the names of three or four of her colleagues without much other information. I'm sure they are just fine, but I'd just as soon try to get a rec from the patient's view. (Bonus points if they are informed about Fibromyalgia. Extra Life if they run an organized practice without long wait times.)
I'm fine with a male OB/GYN or GP, and I know that MeFi usually understands the importance of doctors who are science-based, non-judgmental, sex-positive, etc. I'm still car-less (!) so closer to Santa Monica is better but a great doctor trumps convenience for me.

This question is a long overdue so I appreciate all suggestions.
